Wife Is Rh Negative Should We Try To Get Pregnant

My wife is RH Negative and I am RH Positive, we lost a previous pregnancy to an RH unrelated issue (maybe). My wife is terrified of getting pregnant again but would like to start a family after 9 years of marriage. Is the risk too high or is it possible to have a normal pregnancy and normal child under these conditions?

I am Rh-, my dh is RH+, and we almost lost our 3rd child, we had 2 previous health children, but what happen I had a m/c with my third and the doc forgot to give me the rhogam, so my 4th had sensitivity, and had to be taken by c-section at 36 weeks, because trhey forgot to give me the rhogam early, but thank God he servive, what you all can do is get a rhogam first then start trying to be pregnant, then every thing will be ok with the baby, gGod bless and have a happy healthy baby.

Yes.-you can definitely get pregnant. Just get the treatment for the RH and you'll be fine.

sure. as long as the baby's blood didn't mix w/ your wife's then she probably never developed antibodies to fight off an RH pos. baby. if she did develop those antibodies, it's still possible to carry a baby to term. if the baby is RH neg, there won't be any problems at all, but if it's pos, your pregnancy will be alot more complicated.

I am negative and partner positive, here in aus u get needles at the hospital every few mths to protect the baby from antibodies, we had a healthy little baby girl who is also a positive blood group

I am also Rh- and my hubby is Rh+. I had a healthy pregnancy and my baby is almost 2months now and very healthy. I had to get a rhogan shot when I was pregnant..and they said if baby was positive blood type I would have to get another when she was born. She was A- though...same as me..so I didn't have to get a 2nd shot. Also, my grandma was Rh- and had 4 healthy children, no miscarriages..and they didn't have the rhogan shot back then. I was told that being Rh- mostly would effect your next child if anything, I was told it doesn't cause miscarriages..just can cause abnormalities and disorders (which are usually more common in boys) When you have a first baby, if the baby is positive your body might develop antibodies to the positive blood type which if pregnant with a positive baby again in the future, those antibodies can attack the babys positive blood cells. The shot prevents this. I don't see a reason to not try again. Did your wife get the rhogan shot when she miscarried? I was told if you miscarry you should get the shot.

oh, forgot to mention..my grandma who was Rh- had 4 children who were all Rh+. They are all healthy =)

risk is minimal considering your wife will get a rhogam before and after giving birth (if the child is positive). i am RH neg and my husband is positive and we had a healthy baby boy, who is also a positive.
